26. Helen Jackson

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what progress he is making on encouraging businesses to adopt family-friendly employment policies. [111557]

Mr. Alan Johnson

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Employment will shortly be announcing details of the Government's campaign to promote good practice that both benefits the business and enables employees to balance work and the rest of their lives better. It will be delivered in partnership with leading employers and others.

The campaign will build on the framework of rights to maternity leave, parental leave and emergency time off which came into force last December.
